Qualifications For Liposuction
Being a candidate for liposuction requires that you meet certain criteria such as:
- You should have as much normal weight as possible.
- The fat deposits need to be distributed on various isolated areas of the body such that the overall shape is uneven due to this.
- Skin is elastic i.e. elastic skin will easily take up the new shape after liposuction as opposed to inelastic one.
These types of body fats tend to have genetic link hence are difficult to eliminate through regular diet and exercise. Secondly, is important to bear in mind that this procedure is not an alternative to exercising to lose weight or taking a balanced diet. In other words, this is suitable for those who exercise and take a healthy diet.
How Long Does The Liposuction Procedure Take To Do?
The first step is the administration of local anesthesia (general or twilight anesthesia can also be administered). Liposuction often takes up to 3 hours, though the duration of time will vary due to the size and the area where it is being performed

With the advancement of twilight anesthesia, stay in hospital is not necessary! Generally there is not much pain due to the fact that local anesthesia is administrated during the procedure and takes about 6 hours to wear off but additional pain medication will often be given after your discharge.
How The Procedure Is Performed
During the procedure, a keyhole type of surgery is perfumed. In the skin fold, a keyhole incision is made so that fat is sucked out through an instrument called a cannula. Vacuum pressure is used to remove the fat so that the desired contour and shape are attained. Laser liposuction can also be performed for maximum skin contraction.
